BBC Session 2012 [no label, 1CD]

(”Live Lounge Special” for Fearne Cotton show)
Live at Maida Vale Studios, London, UK. September 25, 2012. Excellent digital broadcast.

As of October 17, 2012, British folk band Mumford & Sons continue their hold at the top of the Billboard 200 album chart for a third consecutive week. Reuters reported that Babel, the second studio album from the group, sold 96,000 copies in its third week and came ahead of independent hip-hop duo Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, who entered at No. 2 with The Heist.

Here, they are performing on BBC new songs from the Babel album - Below My Feet, Ghosts That We Knew and the single, I Will Wait.

Thanks to smiler40 for recording and sharing the tracks on Dime. smiler40 noted: “Mumford & Sons myspace page has a setlist that concludes with Not Haste (presumably Not With Haste) - maybe this was played off-air.”

  3. now that i discovered this band i am glad i can dl this show from one of my fave sites. woohoo. thanks bigo! this is a month before their 2 nites at redrocks that i watched on showtime tonite. an hour long special they filmed. fantastic set. incredible performances they did.
    i highly recommend the big easy express film as well. they are part of that along with old crow medicine show and edward sharpe and the magnetic zeros. i dl’d that film and converted it to mp3.
    i also found mumford and sons did a david letterman studios performance in sept last year that was 53mins long. its on youtube so i easily dl’d that to mp3. fantastic sound of course. guess ill look around for more fm tv and other sbd items on youtube etc of these bands since i am now a fan of them.
    i normally dont like many new bands unless theyre extraordinary. the black keys and my morning jacket are 2 exceptions. theyre relatively new and i love them.
    if anyone knows of any shows by ocms or es&tmz or mumford&sons… please say so on this site. thanks.

  4. I saw Mumford & Sons during the 2112 itunes festival one night on tv, first time I ever heard of them and have liked them ever since.

  5. Meh. They’re talented and energetic, but like Fleet Foxes, Arcade Fire, and a lot of other indie bands, there’s really nothing new here. Meh.

  7. although, i did see them play on my local pbs station some weeks back, and other than ‘i will wait’, i knew nothing of their music. i was impressed enough to note their name though. it was pretty cool. i noticed that they played with the passion of a metal band. lol.
